Photographer's Note

Very few lakes nad rivers are easily accessible in Yosemite National Park. Tenaya Lake is one of the easiest to get to (when the Tioga Road is open, late May or early June through sometime in November) and is quite popular for picnicking, swimming, and canoeing. Mirror Lake (in Yosemite Valley) is famous for its reflections of Half Dome when the water level is high enough (in spring). Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, created by damming the Tuolumne River, is another lake that's easy to get to.

Rivers flow through Wawona, Yosemite Valley, and Tuolumne Meadows and numerous seasonal creeks flow in places throughout the park. The river on my picture flows down in the valley. This is one of the places where the river is wide and slow.
